Leitfähige Polymeroberflächen durch CNT-Dünnschichten
Conductive polymer surfaces through CNT thin films
A newly developed process makes it possible to provide polymer surfaces being formed or modified in a molding operation with elec. cond. of up to 10-3 S. Using a single simple process step, a highly-conductive network of carbon nanotubes is integrated within the outermost nanometer of the polymer surface. This new process, developed at the Fraunhofer IWS makes possible a wide range of novel applications such as plastics with antistatic orelec.-heatable surfaces or conductive plastic components for electrostatic painting and also lectron-optical components for solar cells, displays or lighting.
